NEW GOAL: Lolo Makes U.S. Bobsled Team
Olympic hurdler and Des Moines-native Lolo Jones is adding another sport to her resume.
Thursday morning, the U.S. national bobsled team chose Jones as one of the six push athletes on the national team. She’s hoping to compete in the 2014 Olympics in Russia.
Lolo finished a heartbreaking fourth in the 100 meter hurdle finals in the London Olympics this past summer. She is the World Indoor Champion and American record holder in the 100 meter hurdles.
